When confronted with the Government administrative maze that I encountered while attempting to apply for the Aged Pension, my... luck changed when I found the Retirement Essentials website. The RE dashboard calculator was easy to navigate and understand and their modest fee to assist and guide me in my Pension application was worth every 'penny'. The success in attaining my Aged Pension swiftly and without stress was due in no small measure to the skilled and courteous RE staff. Without Retirement Essentials' assistance, I fear I might still be caught in the Government's administrative maze and still not receiving the Aged Pension to which I am entitled.read more

We needed to apply for a Commonwealth Seniors Healthcare Card. Because of the Convid-19 restrictions our local Centrelink office... was not available to attend physically, instead a representative at the Centrelink Office gave us a phone number to ring and referred us to their website to complete an application. To be quite frank the level of detail etc required to be entered on the form was quite daunting so I searched for an organisation to assist me and selected Retirement Essentials. Retirement Essentials had a much more user friendly form to fill out on-line With their assistance we were even able to negotiate provision of scanned original documents to be accepted by Centrelink The representatives of Retirement Essentials were very helpful with the whole daunting process and we were successful in receiving our Commonwealth Seniors Healthcare Card We have no hesitation in recommending Retirement Essentials to act as our agent in the matter. Their fee I considered to be very reasonable for the extensive assistance they provided negotiating the maze of bureaucratic requirements of Centrelink Graham Behrendorffread more

After being so confused by the daunting process of pension application I contacted Retirement Essentials who assisted and guided... me through the process with professionalism and patience. The fee was immaterial as it was totally outweighed by the help given. Even after a year of having the pension, they are still answering my questions and are so helpful to this "old duffer". Sincere thanks to Shayna, Thomas and all at Retirement Essentials - I cannot recommend them highly enough.read more
